Father Greg Boyle
Homeboys Bakery's motto is "job, not jails," and it's a project created by a Los Angeles-area priest that trains former gang-bangers baking and culinary skills. The men and women in the program cook and run a bakery and Latino Cafe that's received rave reviews from publications across the country. But aside from the cooking accolades, parent-organization Homeboys Industry prides itself on teaching job skills to 1000s of disadvantaged Los Angelinos -- many of whom might be in jail (or even dead) were it not for the various Homeboy programs. Joining us today is Father Greg Boyle, founder and creator of Homeboys Industries. They just opened a brand new, multi-million dollar facility that serves up chicken mole, pastries and other 'divine' Latin-inspired creations that are muy delicioso!
